LA Kings' Fraser brings Stanley Cup to off-season home in central Alberta

SYLVAN LAKE, Alta. - Thousands of fans turned out in a small town in central Alberta to see the Stanley Cup.

Colin Fraser, who plays for the Los Angeles Kings, showed off the trophy he and his team won this year to fans in Sylvan Lake, about 160 kilometres south of Edmonton.

Fraser says he was overwhelmed with the turnout.

The 27-year-old has called Sylvan Lake his off-season home since moving to central Alberta to play for the WHL Red Deer Rebels ten years ago.

Fraser won his first Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks two years ago.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
